West Indies out for 97 against SA. They went from 2/ 45 to 7/ 56. Ngidi had 5 for 19 and Nortje 4 for 35.

Perhaps not the best option to bat first in this case.

Cheers

Yorkshire batsman Dawid Malan , bowled out on 199 .......... cricket can be so cruel, especially for batsmen. I guess that's why batsmen get the kudos for success, because the end can come so suddenly .......

Interesting Tassie v NSW match.
NSW 1st Innings ........ 32 ....... Peter Neville top scored with 10 not out.
Jackson Bird seemed to like the conditions, with 7 for 18 off 10 overs.
Tassie hitting runs in both innings ???
Bizarre.

Cheers

Now 3/400 ............ seems like someone reminded Usman last night that Marnus can roll an arm over. QLD in very deep doo doo.

Not only does Cameron Green have a big double century, but he has a strike rate of 75. Batting brilliantly.

Poms in serious trouble at 6 down and still trailing by 70 odd runs.
may well have another three day test, perhaps even quicker than the last one.
Looks like an Indian VS New Zealand test Championship at Lords.
Although, if England can turn it around when the Indians tour this year, they might sneak into the final at Indias expense.

3/325 , Green 182 not out. Fair to say it was a dubious decision to bowl. Usman might be having dinner by himself tonight.

Not a lot of cicketers make a good captain, and very few make a great captain.
Seems Usman fits into neither category.
Just noticed Cameron Green sitting on 112NO.
And against a reasonable bowling attack that includes Starc, Hazelwood, Lyon and Abbot.
3 out of his last four innings have been centuries.
Obviously learnt a thing or two during his stint with the test team.
When you look at the form players in OZ cricket , apart from Green who has three centuries in Shield cricket this year, the other standouts have been Travis Head , Moses Henriques, and Shaun Marsh who also have scored 3 centuries.
Usman sits in 15th place but has two centuries.
However, he has a lower runs aggregate and lower average than pace bowler Sean Abbott who sits at 12th position.

2/173 ......... not looking too promising. Poor old Marnus can't get a bowl ........ must've told Usman he was nuts.

Usman wins the toss and bowls yet again. He must know something that almost every other captain doesn't know.
